Fellow Velo Bikes and Equipment
All of our Fully Guided and Self-guided tours are priced with inclusive bike hire. We have a small fleet of bikes specially selected to match our cycle tours. Our core bikes were supplied by our local independent bike shop, where we were customers for over 25 years.
They are mainly all terrain/hybrid bikes (but road bikes are also available) with;
• at least 21 gears,
• disc brakes front and rear,
• a comfortable gel saddle,
• a bell and a water bottle,
• a lock,
• a fitted handlebar bag,
• a fitted rear rack & pannier and,
• basic lights.
Each cycle tourist, couple or small group is also provided;
• a pump,
• a spare inner tube,
• a puncture repair kit and,
• a tool kit
We have a small number of e-bikes which can also be booked as part of your tour. You still have to pedal for yourself but, the assistance they add means that some customers gain that added confidence that increases their enjoyment and, ability to explore a little further or higher than they thought might be possible. There is a supplement for e-bikes of c.£150/week.
We can supply other alternative types of bikes (children's bikes, higher-end road bikes, tandem, additional e-bikes etc); if these are outside of our own fleet, we hire directly from a specially selected local provider. If you want bikes that are not in our own fleet then, there would be an additional cost (and usually a refundable deposit to be paid to the hire provider) but, we would also make a reduction on the quoted tour price which will off-set some of that additional cost.
